Organised by Osage Art Foundation and The Hong Kong Design Institute, HK|Runway! is an unconventional multidisciplinary project in which fashion is redefined as multifaceted enterprise and artistic process. By juxtaposing garments, design, art, music, choreography, and architecture, HKIRunway! moves beyond the traditional givens of a fashion week-catwalks, buyers’ booths, press conferences-reimagining instead the encounter between designers, the trade, and the audience as an endeavour that transcends the quotidian. The project interprets fashion as performance, business, and community.
“Fashion as a Performance” with scenographic design installation by Tobias Gremmler, photogrammetry capture by Benny Woo, music composed by Chan Sze-Rok , exhibition design by Michael Arellanes and choreography by Nina Habulan Gelladuga and Proceso Seguismar Gelladuga II is an opening performance which incorporates mixed media and interactive projections to present the work of ten Hong Kong designers.
“Fashion as a Business” is a trade show which features creative booth design fused with artistic and architectural elements for a different fashion viewing experience, acting as a platform for young designers to meet trade buyers.
“Fashion as a Community” is an open market which seeks to create a dialogue between the public and fashion designers as a way to foster a creative atmosphere within the community.
Anothermountainman, the design curator and advisor, selected ten fashion designers who are graduates of Hong Kong Design Institute from years 2014, 2015 and 2016 and works on the graphic design of the project.
